Is your food teaching you to be kind?
I don’t think any food tradition except Macrobiotics and Ayurveda accept this particular aspect of food. That is ‘questioning what the foods you are eating, are doing to you on an energetic level’ viz-a-viz yourself and others around you.
So today I ask you, is your food making you a kinder person? Such that you lose your cool to a lesser extent, surrender to the Universe and are less anxious.
On a physical level you are not kind, it means somewhere ‘anger’ is a big part of your mental pattern. This comes about according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) system (Macrobiotics rests most of its principles on this system of Medicine) because, the liver harnesses ‘anger’ and anger leads to someone being rude as opposed to someone being kind. Also, if you are not a kind person, it also indicates a weakness in the stomach/spleen/pancreas (anxiety and worrying weakens these organs. Eventually the depletion in these organs, will lead to a mental condition and impact mental health. Plus, inflammation in the body, I closely connected to information in the brain as well. So, are you that person? As yourself this question, then read on –
